Pete was from Seattle. Pete's formally played with the Cheats and Monsters of the Deep. Moved to Boston.</p> <p>The art damaged guitar work of Mike Feeney comes from a number of responsible parties. Mike was a solo soundscape artist under the guise of Ancient Pistol. A guitar disciple of Roger Miller, Mike is a long time under the influence of UK/Boston post punk, metal beat and Neue Deutsche Härte. </p> <p>Eric is the new addition to the band.</p> <p>It is all about the music. It has to have that bounce.</p> </div></div></div> Sun, 02 Apr 2017 01:43:36 +0000 PositiveNegativeMan 46455 at http://somervilleartscouncil.org Kristina Blanchflower http://somervilleartscouncil.org/node/46388 <div class="field field-name-field-profile-website field-type-text field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">www.kristinablanchflower.com</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Kristina wants to be your friend and she’ll be good at it.</p> <p>Hailing from central MA and currently living in Somerville, Kristina has emerged as a musician who presents a unique melding of lyrical charm, coupled with distinctive instrumental crafting.</p> <p>Unofficially apprenticing under folk and indie music staples of the time, Kristina taught herself guitar and began writing songs shortly after. Now, Kristina is flexing her muscles and baring her teeth. She’s working on producing a full-length album that exemplifies a new complexity combining her classical folk roots with experimental instrumentation and renewed lyrical depth. She is managing to break away from the pack of hungry singer-songwriters by creating something that’s familiar yet still unheard of.</p> <p>Kristina is here for you. She’ll drive you home and listen to your troubles. She’ll tuck you in and check under the bed.</p> <p>Kristina might be the friend you didn’t know you were waiting for.</p> </div></div></div> Tue, 01 May 2012 16:07:17 +0000 kristina blanchflower 46388 at http://somervilleartscouncil.org Thereminista! http://somervilleartscouncil.org/node/46386 <div class="field field-name-field-profile-website field-type-text field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Jon just completed a six-year tour of duty on the Somerville Arts Council where he served on many Local Cultural Council grant panels and helped program the music stages for ArtBeat, the annual festival in Davis Square.

When he's not curating or DJing, he works as an actuary and plays the theremin (but not at the same time).

Led by duel frontmen Dave Anthony (Guitar/Vocals) and Josh Knowles (Violin/Vocals), the band brings what Worcester Magazine calls “a nuclear power plant's worth of energy” to any venue they enter. Energy isn't the only thing Nemes is focused on though. The band's songwriting, involving memorable lyrics and catchy hooks, will always be at the forefront, followed by a wide array of top-notch musicianship.</p> <p>Since being named one of Alternative Press' top 5 unsigned bands in 2010, Nemes has embarked on two tours of the Eastern US, continued building a local fanbase, and most recently released a full length album. The album is entitled “Don't Flush Me” and showcases the many sides that Nemes has to offer. On the disc, the band seamlessly transitions from arena-sized rock songs to violin-plucking tunes with just as much emotional intensity.</p> <p>The bottom line (literally), is that Nemes is motivated, capable, and ready to take on any audience put in front of them.</p> </div></div></div> Tue, 10 Apr 2012 18:42:03 +0000 nemesband 46373 at http://somervilleartscouncil.org Dirty Water Brass Band http://somervilleartscouncil.org/node/46368 <div class="field field-name-field-profile-website field-type-text field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">www.dirtywaterbrassband.com</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Born out of an unstoppable need to just get out there and play, the Dirty Water Brass Band is surfacing out of the catacombs of Somerville, MA, generating an oftentimes raucous but then again sometimes subtle sound that could be defined as music from the bayou and beyond.
